Punsters Kneaded--Announcing The Fourth Annual Great Durham Pun Championship

Punsters Kneaded!

We are looking for a few good contestants who think they can stand up to the heat in the Fourth Annual Great Durham Pun Championship. We really don't want this to be a half-baked event, so you knead to be good, and fast-we expect to get a rise out of the wit and wisdom of each of our contestants.


Here's a quick run-down of the way the contest works:


Pundamonium will reign as pairs of punsters are given a subject. Punster Pun number one will have 10 seconds to come up with a relevant pun. Punster number two then gets ten seconds. On it goes, until someone's pun doesn't pun out. We'll start the evening with 24 contestants, and a couple of hours later the last pun person standing will be crowned the Pun Master of Durham (a.k.a Punster of the Year, or P.O.T.Y). Order will again be maintained by "Judge" George Gopen, PhD, JD, Professor Emeritus of the Practice of Rhetoric at Duke. With a name like GoPun....


The championship gets under way at 7:00 p.m. Monday March 23 at Motorco Music Hall, 723 Rigsbee Ave. in Durham. Think you can stand up to the punishment? Email us at and tell us you want to be contender.


If you just want to come to be amazed, to laugh, and to groan, tickets ($10.00 each) are now on sale at the bookshop, on our web site, and through Motorco. Get yours early-last year's event was SRO!


And just remember: Those who get too big for their britches will in the end!
